The movie Concussion rears its ugly head


The commercial aired during the Eagles vs lions game, causing quite the stir around the NFL head office.

“Will Smith’s upcoming Concussion, a movie that supposedly will be a shock to NFL fans and expose the seedy underbelly of years of neglect from the league to head injuries, aired its first commercial during an NFL game on Thanksgiving, contests which are often the highest-rated of the year. It came between the first and second quarters, with a 30-second TV spot that provided a jarring change from the regular, violent football being played between the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions.” – Reported by Chris Chase
